First day back at school. PE kits retrieved from the back of wardrobes. Crisp new school shirts. New lunchboxes, water bottles and coats out for their first outing. Quiet house (at least until Mr 2 had a tantrum because I wouldn’t put on a DVD).
Our little local school only has four classes so they only change every second year, but this year was change for both girls. Now they are both in the older half of the school and feeling like the big kids seeing all the new faces in reception. They seem to have grown without us noticing recently. I know it’s two years away, but Miss 9’s next class move will be to high school, and that’s a bit scary.
